Printing threads

Postby steveh49 » Fri Aug 11, 2017 2:51 am

Hi all but mostly Peregrine,

Is there a print-thread view on this forum? I want to read the random story off-screen but normal print is about 40 pages. I couldn't see any particular button that would help with more appropriate formatting.

The forum software we use does have a way to do this, but for some reason our theme doesn't include the button. You can switch themes to get the button, but be warned that it might not help that much; it reduces that thread to a still-considerable 30 pages!

  1. Visit your User Control Panel. The button has this icon:

  2. Go to the Board Preferences section.
  3. Change "My board style" to "prosilver". Click "Submit".
  4. Browse to the thread you want to print. Locate the Print View button at the top right, with this icon:
    tmp(1).png
    Print View button

  5. When you're done, return to the User Control Panel (it's now a text link near the top of the page) if you want to change back to the usual theme ("Artodia: Ultra Blue").

Thanks, Peregrine. If it's just because the story is that long, then no worries. I'll print to PDF then print booklet style - only 9 sheets of paper.
Switching back to usual forum theme now.
